Plenary Assembly Meetings
ParlAmericas members meet annually at our Plenary Assembly, hosted by a different member state each time. The meeting is attended by delegations of the national legislatures of ParlAmericas member states, from all sub-regions of the hemisphere.
Each participating delegation can be composed of up to 12 parliamentarians chosen by the accredited national legislature, with the exception of the host parliament which has no limit. Delegations aim to include members of different political parties and groups in their legislatures, representatives of both chambers in case of bicameral legislatures, as well as both male and female delegates.
Consensus is generally sought for decisions, however, when votes on recommendations or resolutions are taken, a simple majority is required. Amendments to regulations require a two thirds majority. Each delegation has two votes.
There are provisions for observers to attend Plenary Assembly Meetings. Please contact the International Secretariat if you are interested.
